Default transfer bar

Could someone tell me if there is a difference in the thickness of transfer bars ? I had to replace mine (mod.088) with what was supposed to be compatible and now I have no bang ( yes it's in the right way)I just barely get a mark on the primer

Are you holding the trigger back while the gun goes off? If not, the transfer bar can drop enough to affect primer strike. Also, is the transfer bar lifting high enough? I.e. hold the hammer back and pull the trigger, hold it back also and look if the transfer bar has actually lifted behind the firing pin.

I just measured a few I have on hand and they range from 0.148-0.153. Hope this helps.

Is transfer bar failure a common occurrence , what is the primary cause? I have a plastic Handi that started life as a .22hornet but has been rechambered to .222 rimmed. H&R parts are hard to come by on my side of the equator .

The early production transfer bars were thinner and tapered. If your serial number is between AR100000 and AT210900 it would be the tapered type. Not sure where you would find that part.

Let us know,

If you determine the transfer bar is indeed too thin, you can shave a bit off the top face of the hammer so it will go down further, just make sure to not take off too much where the hammer can hit the firing pin without the transfer bar.

A year or so ago I replaced a transfer bar on one of my handis and it was a LOT thicker than the original one. My symptom was that the transfer bar would not drop down automatically after releasing the trigger after pull. In my case, I carefully filed the transfer bar until it was the same dimensions as the broken one that was removed. I would probably get another transfer bar before altering the hammer but if that's all you have to work with then it will likely work.
